Getting a Gmail Account
Setting up a Gmail Account
To use Gmail as your email portal, you first need an account. This is a free and easy process that takes just a few minutes. You only need to do this setup once.
First, go to Google's mail site at http://mail.google.com . Click the "Sign Up for Gmail" link.
Fill out the form page that follows. You can choose any name you like for this gmail account - but you should make it something easy to remember since this will be your login for gmail. Note: The secondary email address asked for is optional.
For security, edit your passwrod until it reads "strong" next to the password field.
Now you can login to Gmail.
